  1. Yesterday
  2. I had a stuffed plush that looked like Lassie. I am not sure if anyone would remember that or even know what that show was. I loved that thing. I used to have to take it everywhere with me, even to the dentist. I refused to put him down and the dentist got mad and kicked me out. lol
  3. I work from home so my morning commute is about a 15 foot walk from my bedroom. lol I do freelance work and support online so I get to work from my home office. I am thankful every day when the weather gets bad out. My husband says as much as he'd love to work from home, he wouldn't want to me stuck home this much.
  4. I think this would be mine as well. I hate traveling! I hate being in a car, I don't like planes or trains, I never want to go on a boat. It would make it super easy to get to places and it would be free!
  5. My husband and I started working on our savings about 3 years ago. Between the two of us, we have managed to save almost 20k. We would like to be able to have a good 150k saved up prior to my husband retiring but this depends on how the economy goes. He will have a 401k coming as well, assuming that holds!
  6. Just focus on smart spending. Get items that will increase in value for you. You can look to do investment buys for items that are projected to increase in value in a few years so you can in turn sell them in the future.
  7. I think the most I would spend is $50 but the most I have spent for a meal just for me was $30. My husband and I don't. go out to eat very often. We prefer take-out or just cooking at home. I never was a fan of eating in public, not sure why.
  8. You can or can't? I am assuming you meant can't! My sister is like this. No one else in our family seems to have the problem with this, only her. She will actually get hot flashes from it as if she has a fever. Her doctor told her she has an allergy.
  9. I usually go once a year, sometimes a few times depending on the doctor. I make a point to see my dentist once a year, my eye doctor every other year, and I get general check ups every few years.
  10. She has to put her foot down. I know it seems hard and she likely doesn't want to hurt her feelings but it has to be done. She will not stop and it will likely only get worse if she doesn't do anything about it. She will be mad or upset in the moment but she will get over it.
  11. I had a friend cut me from her life for her boyfriend. Apparently he had a crush on me and instead of handling it like adults, she just stopped talking to me. I found out months after the fact. I was a bit hurt by it but nothing I could have done to change her mind. She ended up only dating him for 2 years. I hope it was worth throwing away our 7 year long friendship!
  12. I am what a lot of people would call "co-dependent" but so is my husband, so for us, it works out fine. I have been called needy in the past and I am okay enough with myself to admit that but the way it works in my marriage is that we are both equally as needy and both willing to help each other out. We never feel used.
  13. My boyfriend I had right after high school was not someone I liked. I mean he seemed weird and I was not really attracted to him physically (he was a bigger guy). I ended up dating him after I spent time with him one on one at a park. It was a group event but we had some fun talks and everything and I actually started to like him... Problem is, this was a front and I only found out who he was 6 months in. It took me awhile but I ended up breaking up with him.
  14. Something I learned is that some people other they don't care and don't want to change, even if they know they issues with anger hurt their relationships and damage their reputation. I don't think there is any help for these people because they refuse to change in the slightest of ways.
  15. Welcome to the community @Mickey. Glad you were able to find us. Look forward to reading your posts. What kind of photography do you like to take?
  16. Since biblical times, sexual temptation has led to the downfall of many. Temptations are primarily meaningless and rule over your heart without reason. With the internet offering a great deal of anonymity to the users, it is no wonder that more people are victims of sexual temptation nowadays. What might seem like a harmless screen, in the beginning, may end up in a pornographic conquest. And remember, the more you engage, the more addicted and tempted you get. In extreme scenarios, people might even end up cheating on their partner without any intention of doing so- all because they could not resist getting sexually tempted. For thousands of years, adultery has led to rifts between people, and some have even waged wars and killed others because of it. In short, the failure to prevent yourself from getting sexually tempted can get you into a significant amount of trouble. But with the right efforts, you can both resist and control it. And I am here to tell you how! #1 Avoid pornography: Pornography surely helps you if you believe in self-pleasuring but it can also create unrealistic visions of temptation. Like any other fiction, a major part of it is make-believe. But sometimes, your brain fails to process this fact and starts imagining it to be real. And then, you might want to replicate a situation that might cause a considerable amount of disruption in your life. So, I would strongly suggest that you be wary about the media you consume. #2 Think about the consequences: Do not forget that all your actions have consequences, and there’s no way to avoid them. So, when you feel tempted towards another woman, think about how your wife would think of it. Are you willing to give up on a loving family just because you were briefly tempted by another woman? I don’t think so! It is best that you calculate your moves and consider the bad and good. Everyone gets tempted; it’s only human. But again, to be human is to also know how and when to resist. #3 Don’t put yourself in risky situations: One of the best ways to overcome a sexually tempting situation is to not be in one. Try to keep yourself away from the lures and the traps. Be it images or people, when you see yourself getting involved unwantedly, it is best to maintain some distance. If you feel strangely attracted to another person, try avoiding situations where you both might end up in the same room. Have you had to overcome sexual temptation? What steps did you take to get through?
  17. Have you ever dated someone you initially disliked? To be honest, my girlfriend was someone I did not like before. She always seemed cold and rude to me. But after I bumped into her one day, she kinda broke down and went on about her family and how school was wrecking her mentally and I knew why she was cold and rude. She just was so down. But I ended up liking her soon after. And the next time I saw her, I asked if she'd like to hang out, get coffee or something. And she actually said yes and the rest is pretty much history. Basically, don't judge someone right away by the way they act. They may be stressed or burnt out and just not having it. But, have you ever dated someone you first disliked?
  18. Some people can control their anger, and then there are some who just can't. Some change, and some don't. I know people who have controlled their anger, but no matter what they do, they can't control it all the time. They do get angry from time to time. I think with some help, they can change for the better, but there is usually something in ones life that pushes them to be this angry. Either it be their home life, their past, or something else. There's probably something that's wrong, and they are just lashing out.
  19. $10 mill would help me out quite a bit right now. Being in debt sucks, but $10 mill would cover that. But, I could also get my mom a new house, myself and my girlfriend a place. I want to support my family, but I also don't want to go overboard. I've heard of people winning a lot of money, and it just resulted in so many problems. Instead I've decided that if I were to win a lot, that I wouldn't doll it out right away. I would get the homes and the cars for my family, but that will be it. I won't be buying them everything they want. I will invest some of it, as well as save most of it. I want to live comfortably for the rest of my life, and having millions in the bank would be nice.
  20. Hi guys, I'm Mickey. I found this site searching for motivation, and so far I am liking what I am reading. I wish I found this place sooner. I guess a little bit about me is in order. I am into art, photography, being with my girlfriend, relaxing, gaming, watching movies and tv, and more. I also started to take up hiking and mountain biking. That's really about it. I also get into meme videos if that's something anyone wants or needs to know haha. I guess I'll see ya around! 🙂
  21. I would sort out all the legal stuff first. Is this going to be 10 million after or before taxes? Either way, I will make sure everything is legally sorted out and then I will start using it to pay off debts, buy a house, help friends and family, and then invest some into different things. Maybe stocks and crypto, maybe buy a few properties as well.
  22. I am not really into the genre of horror movies. I guess this is because I watched a lot of them growing up with my brothers. I likely shouldn't have been watching them either. I don't mind Halloween themed movies though, just not horror movies. One of my favorites is Hocus Pocus. I watch that every Halloween!
  23. I think this depends on how much work is needed. If it needs things done that are considered cheaper like new carpet, some paint, maybe a few new windows and doors that is not a big deal and you can often get a house for 10k less just because of those few things needing updating but if you need to do pluming, remodel a kitchen, fix a basement/foundation issue, ect. you are looking at needing another 50k+. If you can get a house that is turn-key ready for $200k or you can get a house that needs 50k worth of work but it is only $120k, then the one that needs the work will likely be the better deal longterm.
  24. I can see this. I mean this tends to be more of an issue with women being needy and men just wanting to feel needed. Like if you are dating someone who needs you to text all the time, miss work for silly reasons, or just generally doesn't trust you when you are out of his/her sight then that is a problem.
  25. I can consume artificial sugars of any kind. I will get terrible migraines and panic attacks from it. I am not sure why. I even get this reaction from xylitol and that is considered a safer natural sugar. I don't drink a lot of soda anyways. I have maybe a few cans a week. I think that is okay.
  26. I go when I have to. I think if you are over the age of 50, you should go at least once a year for a check-up just so if something is up, you can be able to correct it before it becomes an issue that requires lifelong medication or surgery.
